Sharp-Tailed Sandpiper

I suspect this bird is a sharp-tailed sandpiper, but I could be wrong. I'm not sure on the Chinese, but "sandpiper" is "" ("yu", second tone) according to my dictionary.  I took this picture in Tainan's Beimen () district a couple of weeks ago, along with many other bird pictures some of which I might put up later this week to keep the blog ticking over while I work. Spending time trying to shoot the birds and other wildlife with the 250mm chills me out - I just forget everything else for an hour or so.
